JM ORTHO CORPORATION which has been committed to making continuous innovations in the Orthodontic field successfully developed the GUMMETAL® world-class premium orthodontic wire, which has unique characteristics, manufactured with exceptional craftmanship. GUMMETAL® is an entirely new Ti-Nb based beta titanium alloy developed by Toyota Central R&D Labs, a Toyota think tank, which displays the good properties of rubber. GUMMETAL® is the world’s first alloy that has low Young‘s modulus and high strength at the same time. This unique qualities cannot be obtained from any other conventional metallic materials. Its properties are ideal for orthodontic wire: high stored energy, good formability, low stiffness, low surface friction, large springback, bio-compatibility and environmental stability. Ultra Low Young’s Modulus yet with Ultra High Strength Ultra High & Nonlinear Elasticity with Super Plasticity (no work-hardening) High Spring Back and no Hysteresis Low Friction Biocompatible Ultra Low Young’s Modulus yet with Ultra High Strength GUMMETAL is SOFT but STRONG. Therefore, easier adaptation of a full sized wire for 3 dimensional control from early phase of treatment is possible while providing optimum orthodontics force that is moderate and continuous, resulting faster teeth movement, alleviating pains. Ultra High & Nonlinear Elasticity with Super plasticity (no work-hardening) Super-elastic nature of GUMMETAL is one digit higher in elastic deformation compared to general metallic materials. Young’s Modulus changes depending on amount of distortion and performs the Nonlinear behavior, a characteristic similar to GUM or rubber.
